4 RAF rowers rescued from broken rowboat
Question of the Day
BEAUMONT, Texas (AP) - Four members of the British Royal Air Force have arrived at a Texas port after a bulk freighter rescued them when the rudder on their boat broke while trying to row across the Atlantic.
A U.S. Coast Guard statement issued Tuesday says the four comprised the Atlantic Forces rowing team competing in a trans-Atlantic rowing challenge sponsored by a British distillery. On Jan. 23, British search-and-rescue authorities contacted the Coast Guard to request help for the team, whose boat was disabled about 1,560 miles northeast of San Juan, Puerto Rico.
The Coast Guard contacted the bulk carrier Hedvig Bulker, which was about 69 miles from the boat. Despite high seas, the ship’s crew finally hoisted the four to safety in a cargo net. The ship docked in Beaumont on Monday.
